    FZR Engine problems

    I have a chance to pick up 2 2009 FZR's. One has 65 hours and the other has 70 hours. I pulled the plugs on them. One engine had the electrode on the plug hit with something and the ground electrode bent into the ceramic electrode. That engine does not turn over. The other engine had 0 compression on 2 cylinders 55 on one cylinder and 85 on the other. My question is , Is this common on these skis with such low hours? What would be your diagnosis? Rod broke? Timing chain? I am wondering if it is worth my while to pick them up and repair them. Approx cost to rebuild the engines if that is what they need. are there any other issues common to these skis that I should also address? Thanks.
    Mike

    If you're looking for a project rather than a boat to ride they sound like fun. There's something fishy about them though.

    depends on the price and what you plan on doing with them, if the price is right, might be worth reparing one and parting the other out

    They are $2000.00 each. Clean titles. Just seems odd that both of them have major engine problems. Is it common to these models? They are both 2009. They are both FZR's. They have the 1.8 liter SHO engines.

    No offense but you're the last person on here I'd look to for engine reliabilty advice. You've been all over the map shotgunning mods and fixes at your build and by your questions in most of your posts it seems you have no basic clue on how any of your modifications fit together nor how they affect the reliability of your watercraft.
